Elon Musk summons Jack Dorsey, a former CEO of Twitter and a close friend.

On October 17, Twitter and Musk will go to court in Delaware to examine whether Twitter can compel the business magnate to complete the deal.

According to court records, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has subpoenaed his friend and former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to back out of his USD 44 billion acquisition agreement with the business Dorsey helped build.


On October 17, Twitter and Musk will go to court in Delaware to examine whether Twitter can compel the business magnate to complete the deal.


Several tech investors and business owners associated with Musk have been subpoenaed by Twitter, including well-known VC Marc Andreessen and PayPal's first COO David Sacks.


Musk has said that Twitter breached the terms of the arrangement by removing top managers and mass-firing employees while failing to provide sufficient information about the amount of phony or "spam bot" Twitter accounts.


Musk's team anticipates that more details regarding the bot numbers will surface during the trial court's discovery phase, during which both parties are required to turn over evidence.


Twitter claims that Musk's merely using his reasons for pulling out as a pretext for having second thoughts. The stock market crashed shortly after Musk agreed to pay 38% more than Twitter's share price, and shares of electric-car manufacturer Tesla, where the majority of Musk's fortune is concentrated, lost more than USD 100 billion of their value.


Last week, the subpoena was delivered. It requests papers and emails about the acquisition from Dorsey as well as details regarding the impact of phony or spam accounts on Twitter's operations and its method for calculating daily active users.


An inquiry for comment left on Monday went unanswered by a lawyer for Dorsey.
